Many graphic designers dream of landing big-name corporate clients and designing logos and artwork that will appear in international venues. Most, however, overlook a source of ready cash-flow right at their fingertips.
Chances are you have some fans of your artwork. You may be posting designs on DeviantArt or Flickr, and have gathered a following. So why not tap into that market? People love original, unique art. You can offer your original prints for sale through DeviantArt, but why stop there? People love art, but they need practical, every-day objects like mugs, tee-shirts and hats.
